5k running and weekly weigh in!

This weekend was quite uneventful. I spent most of it lounging around, which is kind of weird for me – usually I am up and going!! Although I did have a 5K race on Saturday morning.Image

It turned out surprising well, considering I seriously woke up on the wrong side of the bed!! It was a pretty flat course through a small town in the middle of farm country. The 5k that I did was just through town – the 10K was out in the farm land. Which means, next year I will 100% be doing the 10K! Farm land runs are my favorite kind and not seeing any of it on the run during this 5K made me pretty sad.


On the bright side, I did get some of my speed back. I finished in a little over 33 minutes. My goal was to finish in just under 33 minutes, but I was close enough not to be too disappointed. I have another 5K next week and a yet another one on the 16th of March, so I will have much more time to practice!



For my weigh-in I came in at 219.6 so I officially crossed the 220lb threshold. Now let’s see if I can keep it up for this week! 🙂


I do have lots more to say but my time is a little limited! I will update tomorrow on more new and exciting!!

    Good job!! Have you ever thought of doing the “tough mudder”? I think you’d do great.

    I’m trying it this summer 🙂

      Wow! Congrats on deciding to do the tough mudder!! 🙂 It will be hard but will be AWESOME when you cross the finish line!

      I have considered adding it to my line up, although I probably wont do it until 2014. Our Tough Mudder here is at the end of September (or at least it was last year) and that time this year I will be a couple weeks away from my first full marathon. Best not to possibly hurt myself that close to my goal race! 🙂 Although — I am considering adding in some of the small obstacle races — I.e. the 5K distance rather then the 10-12 mile distance.
